So, the government's been handing out billions in cash as if it were the last Halloween ever, and now they're a bit ticked that AIG is giving millions to some execs.
Well, surprise. What did ya think was gonna happen when you unloaded $170 BILLION to the company? Did you have them sign some kind of contract in blood requiring them to use all the money for the good of the republic? Did you plead with them to change their ways and be more responsible?
Or did the federal government decide that AIG seriously needed the cash and that the dire consequences were so great that if it didn't get the money, the nation would blow up?
Ya, probably the last. That's why I don't want to hear those in power whining about AIG's actions. You're the ones that gave them the money; you should have attached some strings.
I can stomach execs getting tons of cash, but only if this movement of taxpayer money to various companies means our economy recovers ASAP. If it doesn't, then the American public will remember and they'll boot Democrats from power with a quickness.
